I had a crushed shoulder . It was healing poorly . I was in danger of losing the use of my arm permanently ,if I listened to my original Dr . Dr Friedman installed an artificial shoulder . Quite a difficult operation by any doctors standards . Chances of success are limited . Dr Friedman performed this operation with the highest degree of success . I didn't really understand how lucky I was to have had Dr Friedman until I talked to another Dr ,who explained in detail what he had performed
